This slow cooker pumpkin butter recipe just screams Fall!
I have just a small obsession with the flavors of fall. This means I love all things pumpkin spice, and love a good fall recipe. When I discovered I could make pumpkin butter in my slow cooker I was in HEAVEN!
This recipe for crock pot pumpkin butter is so easy it’s almost a no brainer. And it makes amazing gifts for friends and neighbors.
I love to take my children apple picking in the fall. It is so much fun and we always come home with bags full of apples!
So what do you do with all those apples? Well, you spend ALL DAY in the kitchen making your grandmother’s apple butter recipe.
No, my grandmother’s apple butter recipe is quite possibly the most amazing fall recipe I’ve every tasted. It is totally delicious but man was it labor intensive. This is NOT that recipe.
This crock pot pumpkin butter recipe has all of the flavor but none of the hard work!
I know we all love apple butter and I promise, some day I’ll share that amazing, all day in the kitchen recipe. But today I’m sharing my just as amazing recipe for Pumpkin Butter.
I decided to make this pumpkin butter on a whim and boy am I glad that I did!
I threw everything together in my crock pot (you know how I LOVE my crock pot) and later that evening we had three jars full of delicious pumpkin butter.
The Pumpkin butter is so perfect to top off some toast or even better on a slice of fresh baked bread!
Pumpkin butter is very similar to apple butter but made with pumpkin instead.
For this recipe I even used canned pumpkin puree which means no peeling or slicing either! It really is the worlds easiest pumpkin butter recipe!
Crock Pot Pumpkin Butter
- 2 Large Cans Pumpkin (29oz)
- 1 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1/2 c pure maple syrup
- 1/2 c apple juice
- 1/4 c orange juice
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp all spice
- 1/2 tsp ground gloves

If you’re feeling neighborly, seal some up in a mason jar and take it next door-what a great gift!
You can also freeze this in air tight containers and save it for another day (or month).
If you are eating yours now, don’t forget to refrigerate it so it will last longer.
